The full line-up for tonight’s Late Late Show has been revealed.
After a week where he brought cycling glory and a much-needed lift to Ireland with a green jersey win at the Tour de France, Sam Bennett will be chatting to Ryan about realising his childhood dream with the biggest win of his career to date.
As previously reported, top US infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci will also be on the show, speaking about the fight against Covid-19 as we head into winter.
Next up, Mary McAleese will join Ryan to talk about her seminal memoir, documenting two historic presidential terms and an extraordinary life, both in and out of the public eye.
She will discuss everything from how her childhood in a bitterly divided Belfast shaped her, to her wedding day being marred by tragedy.
Boxing World Champion Kellie Harrington will join Ryan too, to discuss how she swapped the boxing ring for working on the frontline this year, and how her work during the crisis has given her a different perspective on life.
Niamh Fitzpatrick, sister of R116 helicopter pilot, Captain Dara Fitzpatrick, will also speak about the tragic death of her beloved sister in the 2017 Coast Guard tragedy, and the legacy that Dara has left behind.
Rising Irish star Robert Grace will be in studio too, to give a special performance of his current single, Fake Fine.
Delighted to announce that I’ll be appearing on The Late Late Show this Friday evening where I’ll be performing my new single Fake Fine. Would love you all to tune in ♥️🙌🏼 CANT WAIT!! #thelatelateshow @RTEOne @RTELateLateShow pic.twitter.com/jpxPT8bsfS

And last but certainly not least, Jedward will chat with Ryan about using their following to spread positive messages on social media, coming back after a difficult year when they lost their mother, and their 11 years in showbiz since first finding fame on The X Factor.
The Late Late Show airs tonight at 9.35 pm on RTÉ One.
On the latest episode of #GossChats, Goss.ie CEO Ali Ryan chats with top makeup artist and influencer Keilidh Cashell about her brand new makeup range, adjusting to life in the spotlight and how she’s kept calm during the pandemic.
